Night readings 2

One of my characteristics, is that many times, it takes me many years to read a book that has already been published many years ago. A lot of manys. It was like that with the beatniks (which became a passion), Azimov, some classics, etc.

Now I'm almost finishing Witch Amongst Us - The Autobiography of a Witch, which was written in 1989 by Lois Bourne - who "worked" with Gardner for years. I have already read her Dancing with Witches, an loved it. And now I enjoy this book, that I found at a second-hand bookstore, so hard to find any of her boos here! She describes her experiences as a medium, in a very matter-of-fact way, not trying to show off... at least not that much. She is very conscious of her limits, and don't try to convince you of anything. She just tells her story, and you decide if you want to believe or not.

The chapter where she talks about the Goddess and the ancient written signals that show how human being began to worship her is very, very good, with a beautiful excerpt from The White Goddess.

I know some people sniff at her blunt way, but I respect her a lot, and in this book she shows how deals with her witchy side while livig her life as a mom and housewife.

Again, I'm sad that I only have a few pages to read!

There is nothing worse than reading an absolutely delicious, captivating book and knowing it has to end at some point.

I totally understand.

First of all, I love your new layout - though I'm sorry for all the trouble you had in getting it to work.

Secondly, I have immediately added this book to my own "to be read" list. I'm hoping for us all to take a trip to the library tomorrow - maybe I'll luck out and this (or something else by this author) will be on the shelves.

Big Hugs to you and Lucas both
